Africa: security VAD StarLink has expanded its distribution agreement with Tripwire, a provider of security, compliance and IT operations solutions, to cover the Africa region. The terms of the distributor agreement will see StarLink and Tripwire uniting to leverage their strengths in security products and services, to help organisations in Africa. StarLink's office in South Africa will offer Tripwire's entire product portfolio through its extensive network of channel partners. Tripwire has delivered industry-trusted security solutions, starting with file integrity monitoring, long before IT security was a priority. It has evolved its products to meet the challenges posed by today's threat environment. As a leading provider of security, compliance and IT operations solutions for enterprises, service providers and government organisations, Tripwire's solutions are based on high-fidelity asset visibility and deep endpoint intelligence combined with business context: together these solutions integrate and automate security and IT operations. Tripwire's portfolio of enterprise-class solutions includes configuration and policy management, file integrity monitoring, vulnerability management, log management, and reporting and analytics.
"We are excited to expand our relationship with StarLink to Africa", said Neil Harvey, Vice President of EMEA for Tripwire. "In this ever-changing threat environment, it is important for organisations to strengthen the foundation of their security programs. Tripwire looks for strategic partners such as StarLink to help our customers protect their environments, maintain system availability and comply with regulatory mandates."
"The security threat environment is becoming increasingly complex and organisations are being held to even more rigorous compliance standards. We believe that organisations must protect their IT assets and corporate data, while simultaneously reducing the cost of compliance", said Nidal Othman, Managing Director at StarLink. "Tripwire uniquely addresses these challenges and provides CISOs with a metrics platform that can showcase their company's security performance in the same way their CFO's describe the company's financial performance."
